A look at Clementine’s series I Called her Lisa Marie, where she traveled to the seaside resort of Porthcawl, when thousands of fans at the seaside resort celebrate the life and music of their icon, Elvis Presley.
Liz named her daughter Lisa Marie, just like Elvis Presley’s daughter. Clémentine met Liz in Newport, Wales, a few miles away from the world’s largest festival to “the king”. Each year Liz joins tens of thousands of fans at the seaside resort of Porthcawl to celebrate the life and music of their icon, Elvis Presley.
From 2013 to 2017, Schneidermann joined too, creating portraits of fans Alison and her son, Steve, Samantha and Ian – among many others, for her series I Called her Lisa Marie. Schneidermann spent a lot of time with these people, using her camera to capture the poignancy of this flamboyant gathering where the life and music of the king offers a moment of solace.
